Yea it wasnt bad... not my favorite meat, but if I had family that needed meat... and I had an easy shot you bet I would take it.

Meat that tasted different is far better than none at all.

If you cant afford to buy it on a regular basis and keep the bills paid... even if the meat tasted odd, but it was healthy... you take the shot and just add more things to flavor the meat during cooking.

I can honestly say i've never eaten a bear, but Venacin is delicious!



Virtually any wild game can be delicious if properly prepared. That said, Spring black bears eat a lot of winterkill and can have a pungeant taste. Similarly, Fall brown bears (at least here in Alaska) have gorged themselves on salmon so much that their fat has a fishy essence to it... certainly not as tasty as the fall black bears (though it's still edible.)


I can agree with that, it makes complete sense. Lots of omega fatty acids from the fish as well making it well worth the kill and 100,000 times healthier than the garbage they sell in the not so super markets. It's a win win!

Ok, fair enough, I have tried and didn't care for it.
I do like some game meats and my dad was a hunter..mostly deer and maybe caribou. He was a professional archer but for hunting he wanted quick clean kills so he always hunted with rilfe.

What is the big deal, it was a retarded bear that couldn't even walk right. If anything the guy was probably just putting it out of its misery.

Lets be real, someone probably knew he was a local icon, and thought "hey bruh, watch this lulz."

#s out for Pedals?

He was harmless and known around the neighborhood.


..Virtually every urban bear attack features local residents who say the same. Wild animals, particularly 300+ LB apex predators are never "harmless." This was not a pet. This was an injured wild animal. Allowing it to remain in a residential area was a disaster waiting to happen.

I gotta ask, those who are treating this like some jackass shot Teddy Ruxpin, have you ever seen a pissed off bear? Have you stood 50 feet from one? Have you been fishing and had one bust down into the pool 20 yards upstream from you snapping at the air to get you to move so her cubs can come down to feed? Have you been in 6' grass along a river and suddenly popped into a clearing where all the grass in a 10' circle has been pushed down and there's a foot high mound of scat with the latest offering still steaming on the top of the pile and you have no idea where that bear is? Have you ever been belly crawling towards a ridgeline to peek over it in hopes of spotting some caribou on the other side, heard a noise, and realized there is a full grown board standing on his hind legs 50 yards from you trying to peek over the scrub willows to see what you are and if you're food?

They're not pets. They're not something you want hanging around ANY neighborhood. Passing through? Sure!
Stopping at a sequence of homes to eat food people have put out for them? Oh hell no!

Really? He appeared to ~want~ to live. Is that not ok with you?

But he never got a chance to go to college, or learn to ride a bike or any of the other things that the normal bears get to do.

He never got to balance on that big, red ball.

Every bear deserves a chance. Except the healthy ones. Unless it wears a hat.

It was a legal hunt


Case closed. Outrage is misplaced and meaningless to most logical minded individuals.


Why, because of arbitrary hunting regulations? Killing him a week earlier would be a totally different moral landscape? That's the theatre of the absurd, every animal wants to live.


Not arbitrary. Hunting seasons are usually based off of the animal's mating and rearing schedules. Killing him a week earlier may have removed him from the gene pool during the narrow window of receptive sows, not that a two legged, gimped bear would be able to fend off any challenging boars long enough to actually mate, mind you.

It's like people want to take out "revenge" on an animal for not being "fit enough".

Not really, I think bears are horrible creatures that should be hunted down an systematically destroyed. They have outlived their usefulness as a species. They really are just big dumb animals.

No, you're trying to project emotion into a logical situation. Square peg, round hole, it doesn't fit.

...and you doubled down with a video of a little puppy...
This wasn't about a domestic animal, friend. That bear was a wild animal, not a pet. The emotions are woefully misplaced.

That's a tragically dated mindset, of at least 40 years.

You know... folks in florida, usually transplants love to feed the gators and cant understand why there are rules against it...

Then either they leave to go back home and never see the results of their handiwork... or they see it and dont understand... and it ends up getting some kid killed because of an adults stupidity.

The bear is looked kindly upon because it had not hurt anyone yet... but if it had continued to live and hit a bad stretch when it came to getting food it would have gone looking near the idiots that left food out for him, and if nothing was there it would have looked for whatever it could catch.. pets, kids, elderly... hungry predators do not distinguish between who fed them and who didnt it is food or not food.

How many centuries of domestication has been bred into canines? On the same note, how many generations does it take for a stray dog to throw feral pups? 1? 2 if we're talking unredeemably feral?

You are entitled to your opinion however, I resent your assertion that anyone has been on a date with my mind.

That's actually responsible hunting. You remove "the weak" from the gene pool to ensure the stronger genes remain dominant and the species thrives.


That's so very generous of you.
